. that remark came that jay carney today and it was self evident to any objective observer that it was all the work of al-qaeda from the very beginning. the only people denying that the last week is people like jay carney. they wanted us to believe the afascinations of the ambassador, stevens, and navy seals were the quote of a movie trailer. this had nothing to do with the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. but as more facts about the tragedy were revealed, that story began to change and contradictions began piling up. let's review. >> this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to united states policy, not to obviously the administration, not to the american people. it is in response to a video, a film. >> the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. that what happened initially, it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> we have condemned in the strongest possible terms the violence that has erupted from these protests. and as i have said, the video that spark
is disgusting and reprehensible. eric: that was today. here is white house spokesman jay carney yesterday. listen. >> based on what we know now, and knew at the time, we have no evidence of preplanned, or premeditated attack. >> eric: jay carney today says it's self-evident it was terrorism. so americans deserve some answers. why won't this president call a terrorist a terrorist? hillary clinton, madam secretary, smart lady, do you really think it was all about a movie? jay carney, c'mon, you know better than what you have been saying. ambassador rice, please stop insulting our intelligence. this is a coverup of the highest levels of the united states government. don't they realize this just emboldens al-qaeda? andrea, the issue here is what is the perception in the muslim world? what is the perception among radical muslims? how does the obama administration treat what is going on in the middle east? >> andrea: considering that hillary clinton is on the hill lobbying for more aid to the countrys egypt and libya, they're laughing. they are saying they are not even going to acknowledge this
it was a spontaneous protest against the movie? >> jon: that was last week. jay carney holding firm on the white house position that the recent 9/11 attacks on the u.s. consulate in libya that killed four americans was the result of a spontaneous riots over a youtube video. as we discussed last week the media parroted that position. this week the story took a different turn. >> this is a fox news alert. we begin with fox news exclusive. intelligence sources that the attack on consulate was directly tied to al-qaeda. we've received word just within the last few minutes that they think one person may be tied and may have led the attack on the ground. his name sukan ben kumu. >> jay carney suddenly said this. it is i think self-evident what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. our embassy was attending violently and result was four deaths in american officials. why the turnaround, judy? >> as we stay in journalism, even when you try to ignore them for a week there was a stubborn theme. this was a spontaneous eruption of outrage, finally enough material leaked out through the press, not enough bec
on the government than themselves. >> white house spokesman jay carney was reminded of and totally dismissed. then primary candidate obama complaint in 2008 he could lose pennsylvania because the voters there "cling to guns or religion." >> he is out there fighting for every american regardless of whether or not they support him politically or support the democratic party. >> romney said those par tent to big government and debt favor obama. >> i recognize those who pay no tax, 47% on americans, i'm not highly to be successful with the me sam of lowering taxes. likewise those reliant on government not atacted to the me sanel of slimming down the size of government. >> romney aides say he was describing voters with the choice seven weeks from today. romney made controversial remarks in pay casting doubt of two-state solution between israel and palestinians. >> the palestinians have no interest in establishing peac peace. and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish. >> the best way you can, you recognize it's going to remain unsolved. >> aides issued a statement reiterati
finally admitting terrorists are to blame, and today white house press secretary jay carney agreed saying it was self evident the assault was a terrorist attack. but late today, and this does appear to be a switch, during a forum the president once again seemed to blame the youtube video for the violence. >> what is dramatic today is that just 24 hours after jay carney was telling reporters all of us in the white house briefing room yesterday it was too early to classify whether it was terror, whether al-qaeda was involved -- >> what i can tell you is, as i said last week, as our ambassador to the united nations said on sunday and as i said the other day, based on what we know and now, and new at the time, we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. this remains under investigation. >> now jay carney aboard air force one told reporters itself evident that this was a terror attack. different from what the administration has been saying all week. >> we are at the very early stages of an fbi investigation. the teams from the fbi reached libya earlier this week, and i will adv
or the next day and said this is a terrorist attack. secretary clinton done the same thing and jay carney the white house spokesperson. and angela and i can probably agree this is a terrorist attack and we need to get to the bottom of what happened and i think it's presumptuous of inbound to have a press conference bought the facts straight. to get the facts straits-- >> what about assuring the american people? angela, susan rice the u.s. ambassador to the united nations was on practically every sunday show last week, just saying, no, no, it's spontaneous, these are her words. it's due to a protest. these are just regular citizens with rpg's. >> well, and the thing is this, julie, and jamie. the u.n. ambassador came out and she was very specific that this was not a unified terrorist attack, it was a spontaneous attack due to these protests, but bottom line is this, the videotape that we're talking about, the anti-muslim videotape was out in july and they did it attack on our diplomatic installation on september 11th. i don't believe that the administration misled the american people, but
that it was a terrorist attack, yet two days after that jay carney went out and said it was a spontaneous event, a mob came up and all of this. who was it, sean, that briefed carney and told him to go out and say that? in the white house i worked in, that would be the chief of staff and the nec advisor, because what carney said was dead false. >> sean: it's not just carney, too. >> it's susan rice. >> sean: it's hillary clinton. >> let's go to susan rice. five days after this terrorist attack, she is booked on five national news shows and goes out and uses the exact terminology, spontaneous, not premeditated, not preplanned at all. they were told to go out there by people who must have known the intelligence, therefore using these people, these administration people to deceive and mislead unless they were utterly stupid about what happened. we ought to find out who told ms. rice to go out and say that, who told carney to go out and say that, because we know it was ultimaterly false. it was complete a terrorist attack. >> sean: here's the problem. this president still is blaming this youtube movie trai
it clear that justice will come to american. lou: jay carney inexplicably trying to make the case that the obama administration and their policies have nothing to do with the anger about being in the muslim world. >> we also need to understand that this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to united states policy for the administration, not the american people. it is in response to a video. lou: the romney campaign called the reaction to the violence in the middle east amateur hour. we are taking all of that up tonight with the author of "the new york times" book, the amateur. bin laden unit chief, michael carrier. and christopher hahn and jedediah bila joins us as well. my next guest says protest demonstrations and murders is the latest episode, he says, in the process by which the united states is being driven from the arab world. joining us now is head of the bin laden tracking unit, michael. good to have you with us. it is a peculiar moment to say the least. to hear the spokesman for the presidency but this is about a movie and has nothing to do with u.s. p
is not expected to be with any world leaders. jay carney explained monday why the president has made no public plans. >>> the president just recently had a conversation with prime minister netanyahu that lasted more than an hour i believe, and that was just one in countless conversations that they have had. as you know the president has met with and spent time on the phone with prime minister netanyahu more than any leader since he took office. >>> many are the president. republicans are blasting president obama for being in campaign mode during his visit. they criticized the president's decision to do an interview with the television show "the view" and not meet with other leaders like prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >> i know something about this. i ske ehcheduled the president three years. we wouldn't have had time for the view it would have been packed with world leaders sitting down with the president having a discussion. something you can't accomplish on the other end of the telephone. there's no substitute to sitting down with a leader and the other people he brings to the meeting to
that nine days later this is a terror attack on president obama's watch. flip-flop from jay carney, 24 hours after he repeatedly claimed it was too soon to determine whether the murder of four americans with terrorism. >> our interest is finding out the facts of what happened. not taking what we read in the newspaper and making bold assertion. >> reporter: today, carney decided to boldly assert. >> i think it's self-evident that what happened in benghazi was terrorist attack. >> not self-evident on sunday when susan rice went on five morning talk shows to insist it was likely caused by spontaneous anger over anti-muslim film. >> the best information and the best assessment we have today, in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. >> on monday, newland stuck to rice's script. >> i won't put labels on this until we have investigation. >> you don't regard it as act of terrorism? >> i don't think we know of. >> tuesday, newland walked back earlier claim that there were no libyan security guards inside the perimeter of the u.s. consulate. the white house, carney ducked. >> you're not
really stands? i hope it's something that he can lean against. ♪ ♪ ♪ >> eric: yesterday, jay carney said the president stands in chicago. >> our concern is for the students and his princ principal concern is for students and families affected by the situation. we hope both sides are able to come together to set this quickly and in the best interest of chicago's studen students. >> eric: stands with the kids, students or the unions. but hasn't the president been saying for years that he is a guy that sticks if you were working class? the workers rights and all that? here he is. here is what he said in 2007 when he wanted the union vote votes. >> i've crossed picket lines before. i've got some comfortable shoes at home. if it's hot outside, then i have a hat. if it's cold outside, i've got a jacket. but if you are being denied your rights, i don't care whether i'm in the united states senate or the white house, i will make sure that i am monthing with you on the picket -- marching with you on the picket lines. that's what i believe in, making sure the workers have rights. you've got a part
that jay carney had the too tight shoe look on his face. rush limbaugh is wrong, this is not a democratic set up so media can swoon and the president will rush in and end the strike and helpunes. this is more politically toxic for president obama. he knows coming out in favor of teachers union is a big mistake. >> this is an opening for president obama. if he wanted to appeal to the swing voters that everybody is obsessed with, some out and say i'm for good schools. good schools no matter how we get them. i think what my chief of staff is doing in chicago is right to do. are they going to not organize them because he challenges for the home state and hometown? not taking a position for obama looks weak. this is his home state and chiechief of staff his kids woud have gone to school if he stayed there and he wouldn't take a position? >> bret: wisconsin he took a position. >> he didn't weigh in but he took a position saying he was with the union. >> charles? >> that is why he is dancing around right now. they don't want to come out against the teachers union, one of the most important, powe
. but yet you heard jay carney up at the white house. >> i have to say i find it extraordinary that jay carney would try to argue that the, these protests taking place on the is 11th anniversary of 9/11 were merely coincidental. one of the things when i hear him make the statement, trying to suggest that that wasn't the case, that they weren't planned for 9/11 made me do a double-take. i can't believe they are making the argument. the problem for the administration at this point they are now embracing the argument they earlier rejected at the beginning of week. the statement came out at embassy of cairo and talked about hurting the feelings of muslims the administration reacted not quickly but reacted eventually and said we don't agree with that stat statement. that discuss not repped the view of the u.s. government and it doesn't represent the view of the white house. now in effect you have jay carney and hillary clinton today at the service say this is all because of the video, that it is in fact about the hurt feelings of muslims. which is extraordinary turn-about in the argument. >>
, the white house is firing back at the romney camp tonight. >> shep, they are. normally when jay carney gets questions like this about the campaign. he will deflect them to his colleagues in chicago and saying look i only focus on policy. today when i asked a question about all of this, jay carney was ready with a snappy sound bite and basically for the first time from the podium he called mitt romney's campaign desperate. take a listen. >> ed, i would say that all of us who follow politics and policy, whether we're on this side or your side of the podium have seen circumstances like this where a campaign is having a very bad day or very bad week. and in circumstances like that, there are efforts made sometimes desperate efforts made to change the subject. >> carney went on to say he thinks that maybe even the romney camp has had an awful month not just a couple days or week. they obviously run the risk inside the white house of being a little bit overconfident. can i tell you they certainly feel go right now and they think mitt romney really messed up with this tape, shep. >> shepard: have
of places, one organizing principle has been islam. >> jay carney was saying that president was not making clear progress wouldn't come in a straight line. >> again, i would say what i said to dan, there is a certain desperate attempt grasp it. word and phrases to find the political advantage. in this case, it's offensive. >> after declining a request from netanyahu to meet in week, president is taking heat for this answer on 60 minutes about the effort to stop iran nuclear program. >> you don't feel preure from benjamin netanyahu in the middle of the campaign to try to get you to change your policy and draw a line in the sand? >> you don't feel any pressure? >> when it comes to the national security decision, any pressure i feel is simply to do what is right for the american people. >> israeli officials told a different story. jay carney defended blocking out noise saying that the president's point is he wants to block out the outside noise, focus on protecting israel security. >> bret: ed henry traveling with the president. thank you. the republican ticket is concentrating on the swing s
to agree to raise the debt ceiling and avoid a u.s. default. press secretary jay carney suggests it looks like a winner at the time. >> the budget control act was not just passed with the majority of both parfy in both houses but celebrateed as a victory. >> the possible pentagon cuts and equal cuts divided between medicare and other domestic spending programs in the next ten years were designed to be so draconian they would force a compromise. two sides haven't budged now. republicans want mr. obama to spell out how devastating the cuts would be. >> the president needs to show us how he plans to put this in place if he is not going to help us pass legislation to prevent it in the first place. waiting if thar answer. >> republicans think they can force mr. obama's hand if he proposes cuts the public would reject. aides say the president wants to make the sequestration more unthinkable to republicans. tax hike. but they wouldn't buy it. >> sequester as it exists requests not the president's principles, but insistence by the republicans that no revenue be included in it. >> latest jobs repo
just don't do that anymore. so i wrote an e-mail to jay carney. >> rose: because they don't give you access. >> they don't give you access, that's true. so i wrote an e-mail to press secretary jay carney and said, look, there's an old-fashioned kind of journalism that really should be done again and i sent him an example of it. john heresy, the famous new yorker writer had done this series with truman and it's wonderful. you pit it down and you say "i know this man and i understand the job and i can understand the constraints of the job and the powers of the job and all that." the job has changed, different guy and i said, you know, there's an opportunity to do this again. are you interestd? and i kind ohought i would get laughed out of the room. i didn't think that it was going to come to anything. i got called the next day and he said... >> rose: "he" being jay carney? >> jay carney saying "we're interested in doing this." >> i said "who's we?" he said "the president is interested in doing this." i said "that's kind of great, what about everybody else at the white house?" he said "
at the white house. i guess jay carney spoke out about this today. >> he did. 'cause there has been conflicting information as you suggest. some administration officials have said look, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. that's the opposite, as you know, as to what the libyan president and others have suggested. u.s. intelligence sources have told fox that the u.s. government was warned by libyan officials that violence was increasing in benghazi and that the libyan government may not be able to control it. so i pressed jay carney on whether we got some kind of a warning. take a listen. >> the administration have any sort of heads up that violence was increasing specifically in libya before the attack? >> i'm not aware of any, ed. this is a matter that's under investigation in terms of what precipitated the attack, what the motivations were, what role the video played in that. >> the president taped an interview with david letterman running later tonight and he says he has a new message for the muslim world. they need to work with the u.s. to protect americans on the ground all aro
